For example, I'm sure at some point you've run into somebody who has either told a seemingly impossible story, or just highly unlikely. They might not necessarily have their story straight, but they believe they do for whatever reason. I believe the easiest situation for somebody to believe their own lie is simply accidentally forgetting the whole story, and then retelling it with false facts.

Heres an example: I was drinking with an eskimo (a guy from Nunavut in Canada) and he seemed to take an abnormal liking to me and was trying to impress me with his stories and it was working (I liked his story about him jumping out the 2nd floor window of a crack house lol) until he told me this one. He claimed that he could snort an 8 ball of coke then drop 10 ecstasy pills and live to tell the tale. I instantly lost all respect for him cuz I couldn't believe any of his previous stories then and thought that he just wasted an hour of my time telling me bullshit. I told him no human can survive that but he kept claiming that he's done it before over and over again and he started getting pretty hostile about me not believing him. In reality he probably got the numbers mixed up or was misinformed about what the drugs were and believed what he was telling me
